Use +1/+1 counter both to beat down and as a resource. Working on a minor artifact subtheme. Suggestions welcome!

28 of the creature will ETB with power 2 or less. There's also Growth Spasm , Arachnogenesis and Khalni Garden and Foundry of the counsuls. However, especially helpful are Cultivator of Blades, Whirler Rogue, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter , Spawnwrithe , Thrummingbird and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard.
Turn counters and high power into...

Draw: Mindless Automaton , Zameck Guildmage, Cold-Eyed Selkie , Rishkar's Expertise

Mana: Gyre Sage, Devoted Druid

Creatures: Thopter Squadron , Triskelavus , Animation Module

Removal: Triskelion, Triskelavus , Simic Manipulator (Gaining control is my favorite kind of removal!)

Lots Of Damage: Cultivator of Blades, Wild Beastmaster, Dragon Throne of Tarkir , Champion of Lambholt

Interesting note: Champion of Lambholt + Animation Module = As many robot buddies as you have mana for

Dragon Throne of Tarkir : A repeating Overwhelming Stampede is spicy, but it's slow. really just needs more testing.
Clone : There's a lot of better copy creatures out there. I just need to get around to obtaining them.
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter : Occasionally she's MVP, occasionally I activate her a grand total of Once.
Strionic Resonator: Works well with Ezuri and a lot of other stuff.
Panharmonicon: Works well with Ezuri and a lot of other stuff.
Vorel of the Hull Clade : Works well with... yeah.
Hangarback Walker , Hooded Hydra, Chasm Skulker: Similar effects that help recover from mass removal and are helped out by Ezuri.
Walking Ballista: It's Walking Ballista. This and Hangarback would merit Trinket Mage's inclusion.
Thopter Spy Network: Would frequently be active with all the artifacts I want to add, resulting in experience every upkeep, a lot of evasive attackers and a bunch of card draw.
Arcbound Reclaimer : Hey, counters and artifacts!
Inventors' Fair: Again, lots of artifacts, and tutors are good.
Whir of Invention: Ditto, but the triple blue makes me hesitant.

(What will I remove for all these big dreams? Eh, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it)

(i know that 80s Yes wasn't the best but the name fits)


- Imperious Perfect , Sapphire Drake , Stingerfling Spider

+ Steady Progress , Crushing Vines , Growth Spasm

Took out some stuff with limited use for some more broad things and utility. Will take out Steady Progress for Tezzeret's Gambit if I come across a copy.
